The Phix: Strawberry Moon

A spinoff of Death & Co‘s ‘Muddled Mission’, the Strawberry Moon is an energetic drink of pure elegance.

The sharpness of London Dry Gin partners St-Germain, which has warm floral, lychee and pear notes; the cocktail is finished with a dash of sweet, spicy and herbal Chartreuse. Strawberry adds the colour and tart — egg white gives that creamy texture — while a squeeze of lemon provides the extra kick.

What you’ll do:

  1. Ice up a coupe glass (in order to get the glass nice and cold before serving).
  2. Gently muddle the strawberry and the lemon juice in a cocktail shaker
  3. Add all the spirits and the egg white
  4. Dry shake all the ingredients for five seconds (this creates the foam to sit on top of the drink)
  5. Fill the shaker with ice and shake hard for another 10 seconds.
  6. Throw the ice from the coupe glass and strain the cocktail.
  7. Garnish with the strawberry/mint.
